Where things go from here is as follows:
- Any pre-ordered
will be shipped out as soon as it is available (likely in late May)
- With respect to fees, we are offering the following 3 options. We ask that ONE representative from each team confirm their choice by email (
please - not by text, not through Facebook or messenger apps)
, writing to
by no later than
Friday April 17th
. Option 1 will be made the default choice for any teams we haven't heard from by that point.
OPTION 1) Teams may defer their entries and canoe rentals to the 2021 event. Given the sometimes-fluid nature of team-based racing (vs. traditional solo events), these
will not be automatic deferrals, but offered in the form of a custom discount code which we will issue on a per-team basis. We will aim to open registration in mid-to-late September, at which point teams can re-register using their custom discount code.
OPTION 2) Teams may request a refund, which will be offered in the amount of $60 per 'Hike' racer, $70 per 'Trek' racer, and $75 per 'Trek Elite' racer. Canoe rental fees will be fully refunded. Please understand that these amounts are the most we can reasonably offer taking into account what has been invested into the event to-date. If you choose this option, please provide us (by email) with the appropriate mailing address for a cheque, or email address for etransfer.
OPTION 3) Teams may opt to take part in a "Self-Storm" adventure on a date to be announced. Working with our partners from the Haliburton Forest, we will create a series of self-guided bike/paddle/trek courses which teams can select from and complete at their leisure - much like a team training session.
Team kits for the Self-Storm will be mailed out in advance, including course maps, instructions, and a souvenir item. We will be on-site to monitor canoes while teams complete the bike and trekking sections. On-site canoe rentals will not be available, so canoe rental fees if you have paid them will be refunded.
A date will be provided as soon as we possibly can, but will obviously be dependent on direction from Public Health Ontario. Numbers will also be limited accordingly. We will send out an update by
May 15th. Teams that select this option but are unable to attend the scheduled date when it is announced will still be able to choose from options 1 or 2 above.
